Sterling Systems & Controls presents its line of Semi-Automatic Hand Prompt Batching Stations with custom designed automation software to meet the specific requirements of each customer. The Hand Prompt Batching Station is a semi-automatic batching system that requires operator involvement through each step of the batching process, but provides customized automated operator instructions or “prompting”, ingredient lot tracking and batch validation, automatic weighing with over/under tolerance control, etc.
This system will eliminate bad batches that result from operator error and interruption. The operator no longer needs to keep track of where he is in the batching process as the automated Hand Prompt Batching Station does that for him automatically.
